and engage with iran then. too little maybe, too late, arguably not but not reciprocated. did didn't work. so then you could argue we have been too little threatening and too late. so it comes along in 2002. axis of evil mobilizing forces, we will do iran first and iraq and next. that is pretty threatening. strategy of regime change which is very threatening but not what you are supposed to do if you are trying to get people to stop building nuclear programs or believe in deterrence because the whole idea of deterrence is if you behave differently, you get to exist and we have a nice relationship but if your policy is no matter what you do i am getting rid of you that is an inducement to do stuff to keep you from getting rid of them but in any case there was threatening so the argument is we have been too little threatening and done it too late on would argue that was done. earlier. now you could argue the way the iraq war turned in 2004/2005 took the threat away because the iranians said the u.s. is losing. .. activities to actually make nuclear weapons is a distinct line. it has

. the immediate problem in the middle east is not nuclear security narrowly defined. the immediate problem is iran's nuclear program which threatens to destabilize and make a nuclear arms race. and the threshold of nuclear weapons. there is extensive and credible information for detailed studies and engineering work studying a nuclear warhead. it can already reach u.s. allies and bases in the middle east. the last administration and this administration, 3 round of international sanctions. the choice of two path, negotiation or isolation, iran's leaders ignored our choice, using negotiations and partial collaboration to divide the international community, stave off international sanctions and continue their nuclear pursuits. i can only assume iran's leaders calculate the influence and security that they see as provided by nuclear weapons or by reaching the threshold of having them outweigh whatever condemnation and sanctions emerge from the multilateral process. increasingly i would argue we must base our plans and diplomacy on the assumption that iran will have nuclear-weapons. did i mention i am

, and the gulf states. consultations on the security risks of iran's nuclear activities would be a first step. subsequent steps could include bilateral exercises, combined contingency planning, foreign military sales and missile and air defenses that can extend protection to regional partners and operate with their own defenses. third, the united states and nato should act to discourage further proliferation. they can reduce their incentives to proliferate. also iran must be denied any benefit from its nuclear arms. the world may have no choice but to live with a nuclear armed iran but we should not accept it or legitimate it. other would be proliferators should look at iran, even with nuclear weapons and see that treaty violations bring penalties instead of prestige and sanctions instead of security and isolation instead of influence. finally nato needs to consider the implications for its own policy. nato ministers will be meeting in estonia later this month. this item was added at the request of ministers from belgium, germany, luxembourg, netherlands and norway. these ministers have asked

for today as well as this next photograph of the accompanying saudi delegation. if and when iran becomes a especially in state, saudi arabia is likely to ask pakistan for some nuclear umbrella. the most frequently mentioned idea is that pakistani missiles tipped with nuclear warheads would be based in saudi arabia to deter iran from threatening the kingdom. such an arrangement would not break international agreements if the weapons remained under pakistani control. there are no hard facts to prove the existence of this notion of a pakistani nuclear umbrella. at least none available publicly. indeed, there are a range of denials but there is certainly a close diplomatic relationship between saudi arabia and pakistan. perhaps unusually close. wunl only has to -- one only has to watch the high-level visits to see the respective leadership's value. i don't have a photograph of another visit later in 1999. by the then minister of information, the united arab emirates. he was apparently given the same tour. i don't know whether a particular u.e. anxiousle was pointed out. this was the prefabri

urgent threats. i think russia should be tougher on iran. i think iran has overplayed their cards. iran is treating russia like the tail was wagging the dog. that should not be permitted. i think russia should take a more tough position, sanctions against iran, for two reasons. this is because iran has crossed to many barriers, too many red lines and secondly because this is a prelude to war in the persian gulf. if it is not the united states, -- if it is not because of the united states, israel would not tolerate iran getting closer to nuclear capability. this is the argument i would use in russia and the united states, that the new treaty should be the basis for a much greater calculation on the fence and on iran. it can be like that. the fact of signing and ratification of the new treaty will already affect iranian policy. they are touchy on the question of russian-american policy. whenever we have contradictions, a rent toughens its position immediately. -- iran toughens its position immediately. >> terry taylor for the international council of life sciences pres s. given your view

who are in iran. they are participating in the task force. they really believe that if these initiatives don't come from the u.s. government, that to have a dialogue that the only way that's really possible, given the current climate, is really to the internet as the panel exhaustively discussed this a few minutes ago. and they have also pointed out something that i think is really important that wasn't touched upon the first panel, which is not only is the internet important for this narrowly blind opposition movement, but it's important also information -- or communication technology inside the country is important also for this population that he mentioned that is not necessarily identified as part of the opposition, the vast public opinion in iran, the actually access to information is a state run media. and so one of the most glaring examples that has been given to me in terms of the cutoff of information inside the country was last summer when this young woman was killed on the street. some people in iran did not learn of this death until two or three week

[russian translator for president medvedev] >> the talks about iran with mr. obama and my other colleagues are a part of our agenda. we do that regularly and on a full basis. this means that iran is a problem. and what is important that we find evidence of what their nuclear program is, as any society. they do have the right to develop the civilian nuclear program. but the problem is how they convince us of the community that it is and lately we did not bring any improvement to the situation. it has aggravated. and iran ignores the questions addressed they keep saying small praise it and make small suggestions. we are talking about the future.
